In episode 40 of The Robby Row Show I expand my horizons to the hitters side of the spectrum! I get to chat with Tim Gibbons who runs “The Data Cage” in Jacksonville, FL. Tim is fascinating in his approach to teaching the art of hitting. Safe to say that everything he is teaching is fairly new school but listening to his comparisons to the likes of guys like Ted Williams is truly amazing. Dive into this episode to hear Tim and I totally geek out about the way the game is evolving with the use of technology on the hitters side of the spectrum.
